The location of this hotel for Kings Cross was great and the staff were helpful and friendly but the room which was sold as a triple was the size of a single room with a double and a single bed squeezed in, if it had been budget prices I wouldn't have minded but over £100 a night was not good....

This hotel is 2 minutes walk from Kings Cross. The room was small and in the basement so there was no window - there was a window in the bath room so we could get some fresh air. The room was spotless and the beds very comfortable. The en-suite bathroom was a decent size and there was plenty of hot... More

The room was so small the double bed was pressed against two walls- In other words- one person could not walk around the bed to get out of it. The A/C was too big for the room & it was very cold. There was hammering going on for improvements. I've stayed in bigger cruise ship rooms. The bathroom was clean... More

Out of all the hotels I've ever stayed in this is by far the worst! We stayed 3 nights b&b and it got worse by the day. When we arrived the manager at the desk was lovely, the place looked ok and the manager said our room was on the 2nd floor. I was with my 72 year old gran... More

This hotel has one redeeming feature, it is very close to St Pancras if you're taking the Eurostar. However the room was tiny and an odd L shape, so behind the bathroom was a void filled with a single bed settee, other than that there was nowhere to sit, and the TV could not be viewed from there as it...
